Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
2 September 2013
Summary: It's an interesting world we live in, where games with titles such as Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 and the near-future Call of Duty: Black Ops II end up looking more "out there" when it comes to future warfare than something titled Ghost Recon: Future Soldier . While Future Soldier takes place in the future, it's one that rings much closer to home than any futuristic military shooter we've seen to date.
Excerpt: Much has changed since Tom Clancy's advanced warfighters began their transition to future soldiers. Tooled up with a bag of MacGuffins straight out of a military research facility powered by amazing science, our new quartet of quick-shooting military men - those are Tom Clancy's Ghosts, by the way - come packing some fancy prototype weaponry.
Conclusion: Future Soldier suffers from a sense of split-personality. It tries to follow in the footsteps of the popular crowd, employing predictable set-pieces and hopelessly manufactured scenes of controversy that lack any intelligence. The game is most productive when it focuses on its own strengths, away from the jeers of the bigger boys and in the comfort of its own home. Alongside brothers, the game has plenty to offer.
Excerpt: I wonder if Tom Clancy actually has much to do with the ever-growing list of games – and their sequels – with his name attached. My guess would be not so much. That said, the games that have been put out by what remains of the Red Storm studio he founded over fifteen years ago (now Ubisoft Red Storm) stay faithful to his vision.
Pros: Made for co-op mayhem, Gadgets and guns galore, Varied locations
Excerpt: When we see Tom Clancy’s name attached to a military shooter, we automatically start to think tactically. Stacking up to breach doors, using gadgets to spy on enemy patrols, and swiftly taking down threats as a team plays a huge role in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. But Ubisoft takes a small step towards the mainstream than say, the Rainbow Six series, and provides an accessible tactical shooter.
Pros: The robust Gunsmith customization, Pulling off successful four player “sync shots”, The team-centric multiplayer
Cons: The same old generic environments, Waiting for loading and AI teammates, Not having friends
Excerpt: Future Soldier is a third person simulation shooter, and presents itself as such throughout with top-notch graphics and attention to detail. In fact, in terms of presentation, Future Soldier is absolutely stunning. Character rendering is ultra-realistic, down to the slightest details in uniform, weapons and equipment.
Excerpt: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier has managed a very delicate balance between all out action fire fights and the high tension of stealth tactics. Getting in and getting out. That is why we love the Tom Clancy Ghost Recon Series, it strives and delivers tactical action and strives to innovate, stimulate and entertain on each outing. Sure that can be said for other games that come out, but for this series and Tom Clancy’s Ghost recon Future Soldier, it really shows.
